Dewey Defeats Truman!
Oregon Magazine ^ | October 7, 2003 | Larry Leonard

Posted on 10/07/2003 10:40:08 AM PDT by WaterDragon

It was the statement by Bustamente which certified it for us. When he threatened to punch out Arnold, we knew that Democrats in California are certifiable.

We can see the movie. Patricia Neal takes a swing at Gort’s titaniium kneecaps and breaks her knuckles. The metal visor slowly slides up and the single electric eye becomes a pulsating laser which darts over Neal’s head and bounces against the side of a passing 1966 Caddy convertible. Into the sixteen coats of pink paint the following legend is burned:

Hasta la vista, Bustamente!

Arnold is Joe Camel driving an SUV. When he steps on the gas, Oklahoma, Texas and Pennsylvania are sucked deep underground.

Near the Alhambra exit, the SUV spots a fleet of migrating Yugos heading for their ancestral spawning grounds, a USDA food stamp office where they were planning to vote for the only candidate endorsed by La Raza.

With a chrome grill bar grin as fierce as a charging cheetah, the SUV leaps into the air and mashes them all into pre-packaged proletarian pasta porridge.

To the north, but not too far north, the atmosphere sparkles with contention as the denizens of Silicon Valley teeter between loyalty to the principles of Marx and those of Laffer.....(snip)

Pretty impressive imagery there. I can hear the theremin music.

Just for the record, it's spelled "Bustamante" not "Bustamente".

Please avoid the FOX network unless you can stomache a week of THE CURSE OF THE BAMBINO, one of the lamest confections of the past seven decades.

Actually either Schwarzamante or Bustanegger are correct.

One of the smartest people I know builds theremins and plays them. He's built 4 of them - musicians in the area descend on him after he finishes one, then he has to build another.

He also builds Tesla coils (and I'm still waiting for the one that will throw 35' sparks he promised me years ago).

My brother-in-law not only owns a theremin, but he also played it at his wedding reception.

Yeah, I foolishly thought that back on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November, 2000.

Thanks ! Here is a related link and excerpt:

Jim Robinson endorses Arnold in order to crush California Liberalism !! ...

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/996329/posts?page=40#40

Vanity: The Democrats and the L.A. Times must be defeated!!

Excerpt:

The Los Angeles Times and the Democrat corruption machine must be defeated!! No ifs, ands, or buts about it!

This is bigger than Schwarzenegger vs McClintock, bigger than Republican vs Democrat, and even bigger than conservative vs liberal. This is for our American way of life vs the dark side. Not just for California, but for all of America. The leadership of the Democrat Party and their official party platform of corruption, abortion, homosexualism, socialism, slavery to big government, slavery to over-taxation, slavery to terrorism and willing subjugation to foreign powers and world bodies is pure evil. Yes, I'd rather have a more conservative person than Arnold for California, but sorry folks, looks like the numbers aren't there. And I'm unwilling to take chances on allowing Davis to slip out of the recall or, even worse, to allow Bustamante to win the governorship.

Crushing liberalism is what Free Republic is all about. Gray Davis being recalled by the (mostly Democrat) people of California has got to be one of the greatest defeats for liberalism in recent history. And the additional rejection by the same democrat electorate of the ultra-liberal, illegal-alien-loving, tax-them-till-they-die, Cruz Bustamante will be the coup de grâce!

< snip >

Vote Yes on Recall and vote Yes for the Terminator!!

It will be interesting to see whether the Californians are dumb enough to hang onto Gray, won't it?
